I read that when Yakupov arrives tomorrow, he will not be available to the media.
I wonder why?
He will be made available Monday.

Sorry for going a bit OT guys.

Interesting read so far.

I should also add that Yakupov is a Tatar.

Should be at home in the Oilers then, since Nikolai Khabibulin is also a tatar.

Info on Tatars in case anyone is interested about Yakupov's background.


edit: Interesting little tidbit here.. Sound familiar?

"The group as a whole accepted the ethnonym "Tatars" (finally in the end of 19th century; although the name Bulgars persisted in some places; the majority identified themselves simply as the Muslims)"

I'm sure everyone looked at him when he screamed. Doesn't seem relevant to me.

Someone needs to hit Matheson in the head. His love affair with Murray is going overboard. It's unacceptable. Now he says the Oilers need to draft defense and Coffey agrees. What's with this Murray love affair that Matheson has. He's starting to become a jerk.

Sorry to go off-topic.

Just saw that article. I myself never respected his opinion. I'm sure a lot of others share my thoughts.

It's relevant because I was replying to someone who mentioned that the Oilers recognize his drive. It was video evidence that it matters. I think you can almost make out Kevin Lowes boner.

Ugh, I've had it with this nonsense.

Healy just went on a rant on Hockey Night in Canada about how the Oilers absolutely have to move the number one pick. "They won't be able to afford (what?) Yakupov, Eberle, Hall, Nugent-Hopkins -- move the pick and draft a defencemen."

What really disgusted me was that nobody argued or objected. Elliotte Friedman went on to say, "The thing is Glen, I think they really like Murray but if they trade down then what happens if some other team takes him before they get the chance?"

What???? You're all ****ing insane. Draft Yakupov Tambellini! I'm sick of this envious, "Wa wa wa! The Oilers are drafting first overall three years running. Too much talent! Move the pick!" nonsense. All of this junk comes from opposition fans (on this very board) and the eastern media. I'm sure that Burke would really love the chance to draft Yakupov, eh Glen? Well, too bad.

He said there's no way the Oilers can afford to keep TH, JE, RNH and NY. He also said the Oilers want Murray, which Friedman seemed to agree on.

He's a complete moron. Another comment to add to a long list of retarded things that he has said without actually looking at the facts.

I think I did a pretty good job of highlighting the eastern media's jealousy and stupidity when it comes to this subject. Coming from Healy it's not surprising but I'm really disappointed in Friedman.

Sidenote: Brodeur and Quick's play notwithstanding this is a pretty lousy hockey game. Again.

Its already been reported that the Leafs have made an offer for Yakupov. The Toronto media is trying to convince oiler nation that they would be stupid not to trade them the 1st pick overall.

Healy said that "Oilers Have to trade down for murray!!"

It would be like any draft where teams would be looking at Stamkos, Crosby and Ovechkin like players at the draft and thinking.....man oh man they are okay but we won't be able to afford them when they score to many goals so lets get Jay Bouwmeester 2.0 instead!!!

My advice is learn to like Murray or Reinhart because that's who the Oilers are drafting. Between Hot Stove tonight and Matty's article, word is starting to filter out that the Oilers are strongly leaning that way.
